How Emma Chamberlain Decided Between 2 Louis Vuitton Dresses For Her First Met Gala
“Honestly, the past few weeks have been so crazy that I didn’t even know there was a vegan menu,” Emma Chamberlain laughed, anticipating her first-ever appearance at the Met Gala. “That’s how you know I need to slow down and get excited, you know what I mean?” Emma spoke to POPSUGAR days before fashion’s biggest night, and now here she is, reveling in it like she’s done this pink carpet thing a thousand times before.
The YouTube connoisseur and entrepreneur with nearly 14 million Instagram followers already has brand campaigns under her belt and a solid relationship with the Louis Vuitton fashion house since 2019. It’s no surprise designer Nicolas Ghesquière customised her this high-low creation – along with drafting out two potential sketches – to cater to her taste. “I knew that I wanted something more open on top. There were a few things I had in mind, but generally I just gave everybody control,” Emma said.
The result of this particular collaboration with Louis Vuitton is a metallic studded gown covered in reflective crystals featuring triangle cutouts and an asymmetrical skirt. The chunky chainlink back secures the piece together and complements Emma’s circular earrings and gold stiletto heels.
